at the forefront of the discussion. many see them as the civil rights issues of our time. we must be a party that is welcoming and inconclusive for all voters. sean, put ago side how candidates look, does that mean you'll look for candidates that are more accepting for things like same-sex marriage? >> no, what it means and this is something that ronald reagan said in practice, which means my 80% sfrend not my 20% enemy. the principles are sound. is this not a question of how do we change the party or the principles. what it is, it's saying we as a party, if we want to grow and we want to win and govern again, at the presidential level, we've got to look at times and said, hey, you may not agree eye us on every single issue that the party has put out there, but we're willing to include you in the party as long as you understand. >> doesn't this conflict with some of the messaging we've heard from cpac over the weekend, though? >> there are personal some speakers at cpac who don't believe otherwise. i would argue while cpac does represent a good amount of people that believe in the republican
like this. it's a civil rights case, it seems like that would be the legacy that they want. but more curious things have happened in this court. let's go to doma for a second. >> the importance of doma says the federal government cannot deny federal benefits to people just because they are involved in a same-sex marriage. every single issue we are concerned about, whether it's lbgt worker's women boment baum care, all of those issues will be played out in the context of the immigration bill. in my point there is no point of bringing people out of the shadows only to make them second class citizens. it's all of us liberty and justice for all that has to happen. >> michael: yeah "politico" has an article out saying that there are these republican -- big doers in the republican party, that are going to give a lot more money if republicans start taking a stand that says -- that legalizes gay marriage in america. how big of factor is this, and do you believe it? >> i absolutely think there are gay republicans, some of them are my friends, that say it's tough for me.
of the civil rights division at the justice department the president also marked women's history month today, but talking about the long fight for equal rights. >> 100 years ago this month, thousands of women were marching right outside this house, demanding one of our most fundamental rights, the right to vote. a century later. its rooms are full of accomplished well who have overcome discrimination, shattered glass ceilings, and become outstanding role models for all of our sons and daughters. all of you inspire me to make sure that i'm doing everything that i can as president to carry on that progress. >>> and he keeps that promise. less than two weeks ago the president signed the new violence against women act into law, part of a broad progressive push we have seen in this second term. a kyle senate panel is said to be close to a deal on immigration. unemployment is down to 7.7%, the lowest level in four years. since the gop's big loss, republicans have spent a lot of times looking backwards, but the president is moving the country ahead. joining me now is victoria defran chez ko soto, a
that promise for everybody, the cause of his life. as a civil rights attorney, an aide to senator ted kennedy, a member of the montgomery, maryland county council, tom fought for a level playing field, where hard work and responsibility are rewarded and working families can get ahead. and this is not the first time that he's chosen to be a labor secretary, either. we've got here today governor martin o'malley, and martin appointed tom as secretary of maryland's department of labor where he helped implement the country's first statewide living wage law. because he understood that a minimum wage should be a wage that you can live on. in his current role as the head of the u.s. justice department's civil rights division, he fought to open pathways to the work fos for everybody willing to contribute, and he's helped settle some of the largest cases ever on behalf of families targeted by unfair mortgage lending. now while he's tackled plenty of tough issues, tom has also spent a career as a consensus builder. he's worked with ceos, he's worked with labor leaders, he's worked at federal, state and
for discriminating against latinos. he's a fighter for civil rights and as lake secretary, he'll stand up for the rights of the working class. thanks for much whatting. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> reince priebus. what more can i say? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with that bridge being detonated down in texas. wow. that's what reince priebus, himself, is doing to the republican party. he talks about building bridges to african-americans, but isn't he the same reince priebus who is chairman of the republican national committee and presided over a voter suppression effort in three dozen states, aimed at keeping african-americans from even voting? wasn't the country's number one birther, donald trump, speaker at the conservative convention? and wasn't that sarah palin letting loose with the latest crack about the need to check president obama's background? priebus talks about getting the true nature of the party out to the public. he says it's been a communications problem. wasn't the most excellent commu
it's -- it's -- i don't think it's a civil rights issue. i believe that being a homosexual is a personal choice and that's a decision that you make -- >> bill: first of all you are wrong on that, as every study and every scientist has said you are wrong on that but even if you are right. why should they be discriminated against? this is america adele where every american gets equal rights under the constitution. you are denying them equal rights, why? i mean you haven't thought this through, my friend. i'm just telling you. you have to give some serious soul searching, because you are dead-ass wrong. >> and he could never answer the question. nobody ever has a good reason why do you care. >> bill: i gave him every opportunity. our roving ambassador arnold. >> caller: [ inaudible ] for him, bill. [ laughter ] >> caller: [ inaudible ]. [ laughter ] >> caller: the "bill press show" is ripping with [ inaudible ]. what you say is very true bill. those republicans they don't think nothing of anything. they ain't got nothing to worry about. they are well-taken car
that the civil rights tuition has been plagued before and in the tenure for the polarization and mistrust. the key issue is the testimony before -- before the committee that listened to voter intimidation case. we did not find that perez intentionally misled the commission, the report stated but added that perez's testimony did not reflect the story regarding the involvement of political appoint tees. >> the inspector jep reported that mr. perez has take an number of steps to foster a more collegial work place. >> he fended off questions why barack obama the first african-american president has not named african-americans to his cabinet for his second term. carney replies that the cabinet is unfilled so far and the president is committed to diversity. >> bret: rosen live on the north lawn. thank you. there may be trouble ahead for the president's choice to run the environmental protection agency. correspondent doug mckelway tells us why. >> the epa's release last friday of 2,000 more e-mails from former epa administration lisa jackson alias richard windsor account falls short of what a co
the long years of the civil rights and women's rights movements, the speed with which more and more people have come to embrace the dignity and equality of lgbt americans has been breathtaking and inspiring. we see it all around us every day in major cultural statements and in quiet family moments. but the journey is far from over, and, therefore, we must keep working to make our country freer and fairer and to continue to inspire the faith the world puts in our leadership. in doing so, we will keep moving closer and closer to that more perfect union promised to us all. >> "we." chad. "we." >> look, chris -- >> is she running for president? did she tell you? >> she did not tell me. we didn't talk about that. the "washington post" came out with a poll today that shows that 58% of americans support marriage equality. 81% of people under the age of 30. chris, 81% of people in this country don't agree on anything these days. 81% of people under the age of 30. i think it's going to become increasingly difficult for anyone of either party to run for public office if they're anti-gay and hold ant
as a civil rights issue as gay marriage or gay rights in general, i would hope our elected officials have open mindedness about the ability to conceive it differently down the road if it effects them personally. >> you're not going to get any admission of that sort from john boehner. his job there i guess was to give that particular answer, his party would be horrified if he said anything -- >> i mean, we're just about to have the supreme court case, doma, prop 8, we know where he is in support of doma, it would be difficult. >> if you're a republican operative at this juncture, you can't deny the math. you look at this, say the new poll, 81% under 30 support gay marriage. 40% of seniors. eventually will be well called the majority. maybe it is time to get ahead of the curve. >> thank you both for joining me tonight. >>> coming up, the surprising agreement between john boehner and president obama. they finally agree on something and it is no small thing. it is a really huge thing. the debt. in the "rewrite," i am going to show you jokes that sarah palin told at cpac, not because they're s

engage, a large part of the population wouldn't engage with civil rights. then they said we have to find a way to do this. there's no reason why immigration reform and rand paul says hispanics are natural republicans which they used to say that about black people too. lost of people in america have faith in family and are not republicans. republicans should be natural to immigration reform. many depends on what kind of immigration reform. they could favor immigration reform that brings in large number of people driving down the wage rate who don't become citizens for an awfully long time and stop the hugest big government project i can think of which is building a useless wall between america and mexico. there's nothing conservative actually about the immigration, the nature of the immigration conversation. >> congressman i want you to respond to that. i want to talk about the devil in the details. where we are in the house and counter pose to where we are on guns right after we take a break. u can't go wrong loving i. vo: from the classic lines u can't go wrong loving i. to the elegant
young voters see these meters as some of the civil rights issues of our time. >> that is certainly true but this report didn't provide a clear direction for the republican party nor a clear analysis of what specifically went wrong. there was not a clear agenda to revitalize the economy and economic growth and fix an economy that is wobbly. the only real difference that the, at cpac was pat caddell who spoke truth to power about what would be in the report and what the republicans are doing. >> let me say something about what pat said because he will not toot his own horn but he was the only speaker whose speech has not been posted online by the guys that run cpac. >> i watched it online today. >> it has gone viral. >> that is the not the official version and the reason is what pat said a week ago friday. >> what was the message? >> the problem with the autopsy, which, by the way, is...this was what the jerusalem post said in a scandal newsreel, all are guilty but none are responsible. we have no message. meanwhile there was no explanation of the strategic failures, the real tactical fai
that they don't think is right. >> but the difference there is that the civil union and marriage are not exactly the same thing. and they're not exactly the same thing in a couple of different ways, important ways. one way is in medical coverage. >> but that -- you're talking about a definition. and what i'm saying is that i think the institution of marriage is a religious institution. but you can have the unions that has the same -- that affords the same people as a male/female marriage the same rights and the same protections under the law. >> you can get married by a justice of the peace or captain of a ship. can those unions be called civil marriage. >> we disagree on this. >> i think that it's important to recognize that when you talk about marriage, it is a religious institution and that people can still have the same rights and privileges, but you wouldn't want to force the church to perform those ceremonies and recognize it as a marriage. >> we have to go to commercial break, but this is a challenge. i think this is the big tent issue. but still ahead, new movie takes an unprecedented lo
